Campers entering 10th grade
The Western Trip is an amazing opportunity for campers entering 10th grade. Campers travel throughout the western United States with a group of teens and six staff members, hiking and camping during the five-week trip. The values of Jewish identity, community, and personal growth play out each and every day in a multitude of environments.
Campers visit amazing state and national parks, including Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, Arches National Park, Zion National Park and Goblin Valley State Park in Utah, and Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in Wyoming. Excursions include white water rafting in Colorado and rock climbing in Utah. In addition to the many great day hikes, campers will go on two, three-day backpacking trips – one in Idaho and the other in the Rocky Mountains. We operate as an authorized permittee of the National Parks Service.
The schedule is flexible and the campers help plan all the activities, choose the hikes and cook the meals. Without modern devices such as cell phones and iPads, campers experience the joy and beauty of the western United States.
Experience the Last Frontier.
Campers entering 11th grade
Campers spend 48 days hiking, camping and touring Alaska and the Canadian Rockies.
This group of campers are lucky enough to experience the Last Frontier, a land as wild and untamed as anything one can imagine. They hike the historic Klondike Gold Rush trail, kayak in Resurrection Bay near Seward, ice climb on a glacier, fish for salmon in the Pacific Ocean, hike to the famous Mendenhall Glacier and explore Banff and Jasper National Parks in the Canadian Rockies.
Campers realize the values of Jewish identity, community, leadership, personal growth as the trip plays out each and every day.
